Book Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • A classic legal thriller—with a twist. • "A suspenseful thriller mixed with powerful themes such as false incarceration, the death penalty and how the legal system shows prejudice.” —Associated Press In the small Florida town of Seabrook, a young lawyer named Keith Russo was shot dead at his desk as he worked late one night. The killer left no clues. There were no witnesses, no one with a motive. But the police soon came to suspect Quincy Miller, a young Black man who was once a client of Russo’s. Quincy was tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life. For twenty-two years he languished in prison, maintaining his innocence. But no one was listening. He had no lawyer, no advocate on the outside. In desperation, he writes a letter to Guardian Ministries, a small nonprofit run by Cullen Post, a lawyer who is also an Episcopal minister. Guardian accepts only a few innocence cases at a time. Cullen Post travels the country fighting wrongful convictions and taking on clients forgotten by the system. With Quincy Miller, though, he gets far more than he bargained for. Powerful, ruthless people murdered Keith Russo, and they do not want Quincy Miller exonerated. They killed one lawyer twenty-two years ago, and they will kill another without a second thought.

As climate change and political tensions between Canada and the United States escalate, a long-dormant natural force awakens to reclaim her power from the ravages of science, politics, and organized religion: Mother Nature. However, she cannot succeed alone. In Toronto, a young man named Aiden has been enduring splitting migraines and vivid dreams that transport him into visions of underground caverns and cataclysmic events.

Soon, Aiden and his two closest friends find themselves on a journey of joint self-discovery, becoming the first wizards—Mother Earth’s warriors—to appear on Earth in over three thousand years. Aiden’s inborn magic leads him to a reclusive group known as the Guardians, who teach him how to wield his power. However, it isn’t long before his adventures pit him and his friends against a powerful force that deems magic heresy: the Catholic Church. From an ancient stronghold in Ireland to a secluded village in the French Alps, Aiden and the other wizards must learn to master their magic and protect their ancient knowledge in order to help save the planet.

Book Summary:

The continued spread of democracy into the twenty-first century has seen two-thirds of the almost two hundred independent countries of the world adopting this model. In these newer democracies, one of the biggest challenges has been to establish the proper balance between the civilian and military sectors. A fundamental question of power must be addressed—who guards the guardians and how? In this volume of essays, contributors associated with the Center for Civil-Military Relations in Monterey, California, offer firsthand observations about civil-military relations in a broad range of regions including Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe. Despite diversity among the consolidating democracies of the world, their civil-military problems and solutions are similar—soldiers and statesmen must achieve a deeper understanding of one another, and be motivated to interact in a mutually beneficial way. The unifying theme of this collection is the creation and development of the institutions whereby democratically elected civilians achieve and exercise power over those who hold a monopoly on the use of force within a society, while ensuring that the state has sufficient and qualified armed forces to defend itself against internal and external aggressors. Although these essays address a wide variety of institutions and situations, they each stress a necessity for balance between democratic civilian control and military effectiveness.

Book Summary:

How liberalism and one of the most dramatic eras in American history were shaped by an influential university president and his powerful circle of friends Yale's Kingman Brewster was the first and only university president to appear on the covers of Time and Newsweek, and the last of the great campus leaders to become an esteemed national figure. He was also the center of the liberal establishment—a circle of influential men who fought to keep the United States true to ideals and extend the full range of American opportunities to all citizens of every class and color. Using Brewster as his focal point, Geoffrey Kabaservice shows how he and his lifelong friends—Kennedy adviser McGeorge Bundy, Attorney General and statesman Elliot Richardson, New York mayor John Lindsay, Bishop Paul Moore, and Cyrus Vance, pillar of Washington and Wall Street—helped usher this country through the turbulence of the 1960s, creating a legacy that still survives. In a narrative that is as engaging and lively as it is meticulously researched, The Guardians judiciously and convincingly reclaims the importance of Brewster and his generation, illuminating their vital place in American history as the bridge between the old establishment and modern liberalism.

But the pain they must endure is so unbearable that most of them lose their minds. Even the leader of the Guardians, the Almighty Dragon, has fallen victim to the Heiling clan’s evil plot. With the burden of the prophecy on his shoulders, Master Li, his eight-year-old son, and his loyal disciples set out into the Western world to find the Guardians in an attempt to restore peace and harmony to mankind. The dangers they face are beyond anything they envisioned. The Heiling clan seems to always be one step ahead of them, and their vast numbers make it seemingly impossible for Master Li and his followers to fulfill their mission. Filled with adventure, mystery, and cultural diversity, the search of the Guardians brings to Master Li and his followers, experiences that are unforgettable.

Book Summary:

The Guardians – Threat Of Extinction begins with a Lataran Guardianship leaving their home planet on a mission to investigate a report that one of their protector planets had been attacked by a new enemy alien race called the Tyrax who have invaded their star systems. First Commander Òmon is in charge of the Guardianship named Poltara. What Òmon finds on the mission is abhorrent to his species. The Tyrax would not negotiate for peace. They seemed intent upon eliminating any race they discovered to take control of the planet for themselves. This act of extreme annihilation could not be tolerated and the Latarans were now at war with the Tyrax. Not only were the Tyrax determined to destroy the Lataran people, they used a new terraforming weapon on every world they attacked to make it suitable for their species. Something about the Tyrax required the need for a different type of world than was currently present for their survival. Òmon was determined to find out just what the reason for this was. Later, Òmon was given a new mission by his superior commander. He was ordered to journey to a new star system to protect it from the Tyrax before it was discovered. The reason for this was unusual. It seemed the race in this star system called Sol was another warrior-like species. They fight each other to the point of extinction of the losing race. He must recruit them to fight on Lataran Guardianships and Starfighters if they hope to win the war against the Tyrax. Supreme Master Commander Galis is the leader of the Tyrax Empire located in the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy in the constellation Canis Major 42,000 light-years from the Galactic Center of the Milky Way galaxy. Their dwarf galaxy was in the process of being torn apart by the gravitational forces of the Milky Way galaxy. First Commander Eto is given a special assignment to test a new Doomsday weapon that can be used to terraform whole planets in a matter of days. He is assigned a new mission to use the weapon on the star system called Sol. This is a Novella Prequel story that introduces several main characters and situations that follow in The Guardians Series. Book 1 begins when the Tyrax attack Earth and send a Doomsday weapon that detonates multiple missile warheads over twenty-four sparsely inhabited land areas around the globe. It causes a biological transformation using nanobots that threaten to destroy all life forms on the planet within days. Only the Lataran Guardian Òmon can help save Earth from extinction. Book 2 continues the story when the Tyrax return to finish the job with a a new weapon they call the Destroyer, a large asteroid that will do more damage to the biosphere than the meteorite that wiped out the dinosaurs sixty-five million years ago. In Book 3, the Tyrax are building a large particle accelerator to create an antimatter weapon to use against Earth. The first opponent to build the weapon will win this Galactic Space War between good and evil alien races.

Book Summary:

The Guardians of Evil is a meaningful novel that delves deep into the eddy vortex and furtive swirls of evils that struggle to find its natural outward flow from beneath his civilised exterior, his cultural pretentions.. More often than not ,the stealthy goings on in the modern society behind the smoky , misty , curtain of a cultural living, steam out from under, in the form of gruesome violence. This is the atavistic spectral return of man's instinctive natural, savage characteristics, with callous disdain to the codes of virtues and morality, his adopted characteristics. This is the fight of man against himself.The fight between the savage man and the modern man of virtues had started ever since and non stop from the dawn of civilization. The answer to the question "Who are the guardians of evil to stay on in the modern society?" is man , man alone and nothing but man.- the rulers, the ruled and those incumbents saddled with the duty of keeping the rule of law and social well-being intact. .

Book Summary:

A society where scamsters and criminals rule the roost. Rule of law has touched its all time low. The people are condemned to live a life of insecurity, unable to protest for fear of their dear lives. Virtues have gone down the drain. Its place is usurped by mindless violence. A set of goons thrive, amidst the unwary people, often reared by the politicians to finish their adversaries as part of settling a score with them. They are called “Quotation men” as they quote their fees for killing or chopping the limbs of the people. They kill many hapless innocent people on mistaken identity. Religious sentiments boost violence ignoring their noble teachings of universal love. The spread of drugs assume baffling dimensions with the blessings of the authorities. They resort to easy ways to shun their duties. A minister’s visit is more important for them than a dead body surfaced in the river. Superstitions and blind belief are rampant which often boomerang. The sanctity and depths of consanguinity is blatantly at stake causing it to be redefined to suit the present. Our society has turned a cess pool of evils. Read on.
